            About Us

            Established in 2018, Lighthouse Therapy has helped schools across the U.S. integrate online therapy into their school with ease.

            Before starting Lighthouse Therapy, our CEO and Speech-Language Pathologist, Janet Courtney, provided online therapy services for over 9 years and overall as a therapist for 27 years. She saw first-hand the problems that a company run by investors and businessmen can produce. Decisions were regularly made to improve the bottom line that negatively affected therapists, schools, and ultimately the students. She knew that a company's profits shouldn't come before a students well-being. So, she founded Lighthouse Therapy (LHT).

            LHT is a company runy by therapists, for therapists, for the betterment of students. Janet understands the nuances of conducting sessions online, so every decision made centers around helping our therapists and students become more successful.
